We wanted to show some out of state friends what dining in California is all about and chose Pizzeria Mozza as a shining example of our great cuisine. We chose antipasti, salads and pastas to share and were disappointed to find that they were out of 2 of the dishes we ordered. Hard to understand how a restaurant runs out... More

We arrived without a reservation and were able to sit at the bar. This turned out to be a great spot for us. The fantastic bartender (Michael) made wine recommendations to pair with the food items that we selected. Each was a great hit! The food was delicious. If we loved locally, we would definitely be back.

Great food, and they have crayons and coloring pages for kids. Although we had a reservation, we still had to wait since people tend to linger for a long time here.

Having been to the location in LA I was excited to learn they had opened another location near where I was staying. While very good, it was not quite the same as in LA, Meatballs and the chopped salad were both outstanding, The pizza crust was great but the toppings with an added egg were not quite up to the...

Here for dinner with business associates. Great selection of appetizers. The prosciutto and búfalo di mozzarella was heavenly as was the white bean spread. We shared a couple of pizzas along with a few bottles of solid Barolo. Plenty of parking.

Another Mario Batali gem. Great pizza and other Italian staples. The excellent food is complimented by the friendly and attentive staff. Great vibe and energy in the room. Our party of six had such a great time that we lingered long after dinner was finished to enjoy several more bottles of fine Chianti.

Let me start by saying that I am a "frequent flyer" at Pizzeria Mozza! As far as I am concerned, the pizza is some of the best in the area. My most recent visit was just after Christmas 2016 - we had a party of seven and all of us really enjoyed the food. Other than the pizza, the cauliflower... More

We went last Friday ( Black Friday ) the place was empty , probably because the day, pizza was absolutely good, we taken couple of tomato pizzo, one margherita and one prosciutto, all was perfect. Pasta is not really traditional but it is absolutely a good interpretation of Italian pizza .

Visited last night. Very busy so best to book. The pizza was delicious. The homemade fennel sausage was especially good. Not as keen on the chop salad. The portion was big enough for 3-4 people. Two pizzas between a family of 3 was plenty. The butterscotch budino was very good. Service was also fine. They refilled your water glasses often.... More

A couple of years ago we had lunch at Mozza and thought that the lasagna was fabulous. We had not found it since, until I called on our recent trip to the area, I learned that the lasagna al Forno is available on Friday, Saturday and Sunday until they run out. We went on Friday for lunch. Incredible! My wife... More
